Kingston’s Green Energy Committee is hosting a public forum on community land-based wind power titled “Wind Energy 101: An Introduction to the Costs and Benefits of Modern Wind Power” Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Kingston Intermediate School.
Designed to answer the most frequently asked questions about wind energy and dispel some common myths, the forum will include presentations by two wind energy specialists at the University of Massachusetts’ Renewable Energy Research Laboratory.
The forum will introduce residents to the costs and benefits of utility-scale wind turbines and cover topics such as economics, birds, sound, and visual impact, and other environmental effects.
The event is free and funded by the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust.
